The Kansas Treasury Department does not require the registration and titling of snowmobiles, car trailers, or ATV's, as they do with other motor vehicles.
But some counties require local registration for ATVs and snowmobiles, so check with your local police station. You may even be required to present the ATV in person for a photograph and local registration paperwork completion.
Trailers are exempt from registration as long as the combined weight of the trailer and the load being carried does not exceed 2,000 pounds. Farm trailers are also exempt, provided the load being carried on the trailer does not exceed 6,000 pounds.
